Advice to applicants
In addition to the formal online application, candidates should send all supporting documents (CV, transcripts, certificates, confirmation of funding, English language ability (if applicable), references and a personal statement).
Applicants will need to write an outline of their proposed research study to attach to their application (1,000 words maximum).
Following submission of the formal University online postgraduate application, this proposal should be emailed directly alongside other supporting documentation (such as references and copies of degree certificates) to the Doctoral Academy Admissions Office at email@example.com .
The proposal forms a very important part of your application and (if the applicant is eligible) will be used in any decision process associated with funding your research. Further advice on the application can be obtained by contacting the Admissions team directly.
Candidates are encouraged to both identify and contact a suitable academic supervisor prior to applying. Help in establishing a suitable supervisor is available from the Admissions Team if required.
